Fab Friday 04

Posted on

Hello everyone! I hope that you had a nice day yesterday. Mine was good, I got to see some of my peeps at the birthday party and I spent some time with my friend Sandy too. My daughter came over and we had dinner together and then my friend Louis stopped by and we chatted with my neighbors downstairs. All in all a very nice day!

Today’s post is for this week’s Fab Friday Challenge. This week we have a color challenge…

When I first saw it I thought… hmmm. We all know how I love non-traditional Holiday and card and it doesn’t get more non-traditional that these colors! The base of my card is Summer Starfruit Card Stock. The main panel is stamped across the top with the pine needles form the Watercolor Winter Stamp Set in Island Indigo. I stamped the greeting from the Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set in Midnight Muse. The ornaments are from the Merry Minis Stamp Set and are stamped in Summer Starfruit and Midnight Muse. I used the Merry Minis Punch Pack to punch them out. They are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals that also hold the Island Indigo Bakers Twine in place. I used the Paper-Piercing Tool and the Stampin’ Pierce Mat to poke some holes in the panel. To make it a little easier to get the twine through to the back I used a needle threader. For a little added security I used some tape to secure the ends around the back. The paned is then mounted to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think the Island Indigo pines have a little bit of a blue spruce feel to them and I love the Merry Minis Stamp Set and Punch Pack. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Fab Friday Challenge Card. Thank you for your time and comments! Have a great Sunday!
